there to the right of your screen. you recognize him. it's bob dole. one-time republican presidential candidate. and 30-year senate leader. and in a very emotional moment, democrat and republicans walked over to him to greet him. and then democratic senator john kerry, who also has two purple hearts, who also was nominated to run for president, gave his most impassioned speech of the year. >> bob dole, why is he not here? he's not here to advocate for the united nations and certainly this man is not here because he doesn't want to defend the sovereignty of the united states of america. he is here because he wants to know that other countries will come to treat the disabled the way we do. he's here because he wants to know that when a disabled american veteran or wounded warriors travel overseas, that they are treated with the same dignity and respect that they receive here at home. that's why an 89-year-old veteran one week removed from the bethesda naval hospital comes back to the senate on an early december day, because it matters. because what we do here in the united states senate

. i don't want to try to push it one way or the other, but seeing bob dole on the floor yesterday of the congress, on the disability question and remembering how bob dole and george mitchell, how much they respected each other, how much they worked together, how much they both wanted to negotiate. there was a sense in the senate especially, but even in the house some years ago, that the purpose of being there was to make progress for the country. yes, you made your arguments loud and clear. at end of the day you sat down and negotiated it out because that's what the country needed. now there's this -- there's this willingness to keep trying to pin the political blame on the other side, keep trying to push the other side, making sure they get the blame if this thing goes down rather than sort of saying, how do we make sure we don't go down? >> we'll leave it there. dana bash, jessica yellen, appreciate your reporting. >>> as we mentioned treasury secretary said today, the obama administration is willing to go over the fiscal cliff if republicans don't agree to raising taxes on the ric

despite the fact that one of their own, bob dole, bob dole, a former majority leader, came to the floor in a wheelchair trying to draw support for this treaty. he was being pushed by his wife and made an impassioned plea. senator santorum explained opposition to this treaty in a piece published in "the daily beast." in part he says this. our nation has been been the worldwide leader when it comes to protecting the disabled. we should be telling the u.n. and not the other way around how to ensure dignity and respect for the disabled. effectively saying nobody tells the united states what to do. it sets a very dangerous precedent perhaps for other things. okay. that sounded legitimate until it came out that that's not what the treaty suggests. senator kerry was mincing absolutely no words in saying that rick santorum doesn't know what he's talking about. here he is on "the situation room" yesterday. >> i have great respect for both rick and his wife, karen, and their daughter and he's a strong family man. he either hasn't read the treaty or doesn't understand it or he was just not f

former republican senator bob dole made it. he came to the chamber to show his support for the treaty. he led the charge against the treaty. he warned that it would jeopardize personal sovereignty and freedoms. there is a provision in this law which we would be adopting if the senate ratifies this. which puts the state in the division of the child. ji cannot support the treaty to raise their children with the constant threat of state interference. >> the treaty could interfere for parents to decide what action is in the best interest of their children. >> that is not true. but it doesn't and i repeat does not require any changes to existing state and federal laws. dick thornburg testified saying that the treaty's provisions recognize the prevention as a non discrimination instrument similar to our own americans with disabilities act. that fact didn't stop rick santorum from twisting the facts along the way. >> this is a direct assault on us and to our family to hand over to the state to make medical determinations and see what is in the best interest of the child and not look a

was delighted and in the six years that we served together, i as majority leader, bob dole as minority leader, never once did a harsh word pass between us, although we differed on many issues, we debated vigorously on the floor of the senate, but it was not personal and we had dinner a couple times a week to talk about the issues and the problems that we had, and life in general. i think that's missing now, unfortunately. >> so i mean, who do you -- i don't know if blame is the right word, but how do you account for this idea that compromise is a dirty word in some quarters? is it tea party, is it extremes in either party? who is it? >> i think it's a combination of many factors, and i'm not an expert on this. i don't pretend to have all of the answers. but first, you now have redistricting which means that the vast majority of house members are elected in safe seats so the crucial election is not the general election, it's the primary election, and as we know in primaries, there's low participation which gives a hugely disproportionate power to the rigid extremes on both side

taking a stand against people with disabilities? former senator bob dole took to the senate floor in his wheelchair to push for support of the united nations treaty that helps disabled people around the world. despite that, senators voted against the treaty, something that would presumably have had a wide margin of support. >> i've heard from advocacy group s consisting of people w hope that this treaty will protect disabled americans who will protect them as they travel abroad. i've also heard from parents of disabled children that this treaty will threaten their rights as parents. >> i sympathize with john boehner. the tea party has a firm grip on the republican party and that's obvious, what's happened this morning here in washington. >> in rejecting this treaty, the united states broke from 125 countries that have ratified the treaty, including syria and saudi arabia. senate republicans actually voted to approve the measure, like senator john mccain and kelly ayotte, to name a few. others b others band together saying that if passed it will inhibit people in the united states. an
